Cameron Meyer rejoins Orica-Scott in three-year deal

by CyclingTips

Orica-Scott has confirmed that track world champion Cameron Meyer will return to the team in 2018.

Meyer raced for the Australian team from its debut season, 2012, until 2015, before heading to Dimension Data where he raced the first half of the 2016 season. The West Australian then took some time away from the sport, before returning to racing in 2017. In 2018, he’ll return to the GreenEdge setup.

“I am really happy to be coming back to the team,” said Meyer. “I have a lot of friends here including riders and staff members and I’m excited to be returning to a familiar environment where I previously spent four successful years.”

Meyer has signed a three-year deal with the team that will allow him to work towards his track ambitions at the 2020 Olympics in Toyko.

“During my time away from the team racing for the Australian national squad I found that striking a good balance between track and road commitments is what suits me best. A big goal on the horizon for me is to win a gold medal in the madison at the next Olympics in Tokyo and the Commonwealth Games before that.”
